What is Campbell Posture Cane?
Traditional canes may cause crippling pain due to the awkward position of the handle which make you walk hunched over, head down causing neck and back pain. The solution is the upright Campbell Posture Cane – the unique walking cane that allows you to walk more upright with your head facing forward instead of down. The makers of the Campbell Posture Cane claim that with their cane you are more secure, comfortable, balanced and safe using this cane.
How does Campbell Cane Work?According to the Infomercial the secret of the Campbell Posture Cane is the unique Campbell Handle which takes the pressure off your shoulder and wrist and placing you in a natural upright pain-free position. The Campbell Posture Cane comes with a 360 degree traction tip that makes the cane stand securely right next to you, this helps in getting up and out of chair. It also helps in safely navigating sidewalks and stairs.
The Campbell Posture Cane comes with 12 height adjustment settings which makes it suitable for most people with varying height. Also the manufacturer claims it to be lightweight yet sturdy.
Campbell Cane ExposedWe will methodically analyze all the promises made by the Campbell Cane manufacturer and show you the how they are false.
Campbell Cane Features and Benefits
- “You will be MORE perfectly balanced, safe, secure, and more comfortable when you walk” – its a sales-pitch, Campbell Cane has no such feature that makes it superior to a regular cane.
- “Helps you easily get up and out of chair” – We agree with this claim. It would be much easier to get up using a Campbell cane than a regular one.
- “Revolutionary handle causes you to walk upright and change your posture, help you move easier and feel less pain*” – This is the most gibberish of all the claims. There is nothing “REVOLUTIONARY” about the Campbell Cane handle. It does not make you walk upright on its own, you have to take efforts to change your posture. It is the height of the cane and the angle of your elbow that decided where you look.
- “Supports the strength of your body to dramatically improve your posture, help you move easier and feel less pain*” – notice the asterisk(*) mark after the word pain – hey have give the disclaimer at the bottom that says – “Not intended to permanently fix posture or chronic pain. Please see your doctor if you have recurring posture problems or pain when standing straight.” Do not believe in any such claims that promises pain-relief, in fact the handle of the Campbell cane causes more wrist pain.
- “Revolutionary handles take pressure off your shoulder and wrist” – Again more nonsensical claims without enough evidence supporting the claims.
- “Stand-up stability with 360 degree traction” – A lot of jargon used for a simple non-skin feature.
- “12 different height adjustments to customize the fit” – That’s a good feature.
- “Lightweight and sturdy making it easy to carry with you” – Again some unprofessional claims, if they say Campbell Cane is lightweight they need to support it with facts, like it’s weight. If they say Campbell Cane is sturdy then they should produce the proof of it’s sturdiness by mentioning about its material.
Walking with the Campbell Cane
The official website of Campbell Cane tries to lure in the elder buyers by stating “Look Forward with Campbell Posture Cane”. This claim is utterly false. You just cannot hold a walking cane and look straight. When you walk you naturally tend to look down and you should. Also there is a flaw in the way the person in the photo holds the Campbell Cane. The angle at which the elbow bends when he holds the cane is 90 Degree which is not recommended. MayoClinic.org recommends that the elbow angle should not exceed 15 degree.
Campbell Cane vs Regular Cane
This photo is just so ridiculous, they have purposely used a shorter regular cane to make the user slump forward. There are regular canes whose height can be adjusted just like the Campbell Cane. Campbell Posture Cane offers no added benefit that the regular cane does not. In-fact the Campbell cane makes walking uncomfortable.
Campbell Cane Uses
Campbell Cane claims it can be used “safely navigate hills, uneven terrain, sidewalks and stairs”. With such claims Campbell Posture Cane promoters are trying to convince the old folks that Campbell Cane can make them do all those activities that they had stopped, this is hogwash. Not just Campbell but none of walking canes can be used for walking over uneven terrain, especially for elder folks. It makes a good “hiking cane” though and could be suitable for hilly areas for younger people.
Campbell Cane REVIEW
The Campbell Posture Cane is stuck in identity crisis. It neither has a good support, nor is it suited for people with balance issues. The manufacturers of the Campbell Cane are trying to promote their cane as a miracle product that claims to make you walk straight again. Well this is not gong to happen. As per the reviews that we have studied and analyzed its not what they portray it to be. Our verdict on the Campbell Posture Cane is that it is just a regular walking cane and the change in the handle design would not in any way have any benefits more than the regular cane.
When selecting a Cane the most important factors are the Grip of the Cane, the tip of the cane and the height of the Cane. The Campbell Cane fails in the first two parameters (grip and tip). The unusual grip handle of the Campbell Posture Cane is the most stupid idea, if that was a better grip design than someone would have definitely come up with this design earlier.
The grip of the Campbell Cane is more suited for people who don’t have any serious balance issues. As mentioned at the top the Campbell Cane is trapped in an identity crisis. They have tried to load all the features in this cane and it is good at none of them.
Does the Campbell Cane skid?
Given the small tip of the Campbell Cane it is likely to skid.
What is the height of the Campbell Cane?
The official Campbell Posture Cane website does not mention the height of the cane.
Campbell Posture Cane Pricing
The Campbell Posture Cane is expensive priced at $40. There are tried and tested canes out there that cost not more than $15 and we don’t see any reason why you should buy this expensive cane.
What is the Warranty?
That is another disadvantage of the Campbell Cane, it does not come with any warranty.
Should I buy the Campbell Cane?
Nope. This is an expensive cane that does not deliver what it claims. Don’t believe all the false promises made by the cane. It is not at all pain-free, the awkward grip handle has more chances of causing you pain.
